Katie and Kyle
How We Met: Kyle and I went to high school together but never really interacted with each other. About three years post high school, we ran into each other at our local gym. We started talking to each other everyday at the gym and eventually a friendship blossomed which would eventually turn into a beautiful three year relationship. I was usually completely against guys trying to hit on girls in the gym but I am so thankful he approached me because I ended up meeting the love of my life!
How He Asked: We decided that we would celebrate our 3 year anniversary on the Saturday that followed it. Kyle said that he would plan it because he wanted to do something nice for me. He suggested that we go back to the place where we had our first date. We always joke about our first date, it took Kyle a lot to muster up the confidence to kiss me. Well I didn’t know this time he needed to muster up the confidence to do something even bigger!
After we parked, he took me to the benches we sat on in front of the pond after we had dinner. We had stayed out there for hours post dinner just talking about everything. So we sat down on the benches and started reminiscing. Kyle kept my head and attention turned to my left and I wasn’t really sure, he just kept pointing at a dog and talking about it. Next thing I know he grabs my hand and turns me around.
There standing in front of me was my family and best friends, all eyes on me. Kyle dropped to one knee and proposed. I was so nervous I started shaking and then laughing followed by tears of course. He could not have done it any more perfectly. He made my dreams come true and now I get to marry this incredible man.
